    Buffet style food was pretty low quality and poorly presented Most of the meat served at the table was barely eatable Hard to understand the “presenter” of each type of meat Two items were too salty, one item was very tough to eat.. We barely eat anything Service seems to be to hectic and unclear when and what you are getting We just paid our bill after sample a couple items.. didn’t dare to try desert… On the way home I stopped at the grocery store and bought my dinner there The frozen section microwave dinner seems to be a better alternative to the “steak house” It taste better and cost 16 (!) times less…

    As always, the food was very good. Service was much better than last time, but still off and on. Three people came to get our drink order and pestered us about wine every two minutes until we hid the menu. During the meal, everything was great until there was about a 10+ minute lull of the meat servers. When we got a dessert menu, nobody came around for 10 minutes. We finally gave up and asked for a check. Before the check arrived, three people came by over three minutes to take our dessert order. Crazy

    The location at Rose & Pike disappointed us during this visit. The meat servers kept passing up our table and when we requested meat cooked medium well, the server never returned. We got like 3 cuts if meat during our experience.

    Has to wait 15 minutes from our reserved time. Certainly no dress code adherence - super casual if not trashy. Meat items were very greasy except the lamb chops which I had to expressly ask for - they were not making the rounds. Should have some type of sauce for the meat dishes - I am not a caveman. No mint jelly. Overall not worth the $60 minimum pricing - I will not return.

    The hostess (latino and wearing a white collar shirt)at the front was extremely rude and unsympathetic to the wait time although we had a reservation and when we were finally called my baby had fallen asleep in her very small compact stroller that don’t under the table but she asked me to take the baby out of the stroller and hold her in my hands because no strollers were allowed in the dinning area. I insisted that I would be able to eat with a heavy baby in my arms and I reassured her that we could just move a chair from the table and fit her under the table where she would be away from the service people. Another hostess came by and said you can absolutely move the chair from the table if the baby was counted in the reservation (which she was). I thanked her so much! I later saw the people at a nearby table with a dog in a stroller whom the hostess let by without hesitation. I will not be returning to this restaurant.

    Fogo de Chao - BethesdaResponded on June 22, 2022Iris, it concerns us to learn of your recent visit, as this does not sound like the welcoming and courteous service we aim for.

    Ruth’s Chris meets a large food hall. Delicious food served buffet-style for $36-60/ea. The menu is designed to push everyone to choose the $60 all you can eat of anything option, but I knew I didn’t want that much meat, so I chose the salad bar and all-you-can-eat-lamb for $36. My husband did the $60 option and regretted it. We just don’t eat enough to justify that. We also prefer table service over buffet style. It’s more relaxing, quieter, and I eat less when a few perfectly prepared items come on a plate (vs building my own plate). That said, the salads were delicious—exactly to my taste—and could tempt me to come back sometime and just get the salad bar (which would still be $31). I’ll add the papaya ice cream dessert was refreshing and paired with decaf coffee - a perfect dessert.

    Had to look for server several times for assistance and service seemed rushed when they did come. It was not a relaxing dining experience last night. Several of the meat options (for example, lamb and tenderloin with bacon) were very well done-grey in color. Asked for a steak option not so well done and got bottom sirloin which was raw. Have had better experiences at this restaurant prior.

    My visit to Fogo de Chao was great!. This is one of my favorite places for lunch or dinner in the Bethesda, MD area. The food choices are limitless. Everything that I had was seasoned perfectly and tasted fantastic. The Bone-in Beef Ancho and Linguica are two of my favorite meal items and neither let me down. The servers were extremely friendly and gave helpful descriptions on food items I wasn't familiar with. Overall, this was a great outing for lunch with one of my long time friends. I would recommend Fogo de Chao to anyone who want a tasty meal at a great place in a phenomenal atmosphere.

    The salad bar was nice, the tomato soup was the stand out from it along with fresh fruit to end the meal on. From the table side meat service the lamb selections (the lamb chop and the lamb Cordeiro) were the stand out cuts and the filet mignon was cooked to perfection. There was also a fried cheese with honey that was table side and was quite good. Of the sides that are brought to the table the cheese bread the fried bananas were also very tasty. Overall this was a very indulgent experience in which everything was hot, fresh and tasty with excellent wait staff. We will definitely be returning for another dining experience.
